JpMagazine ???

When did the last issue of JpMagazine come out, and what was on the cover? I'm wondering if I've missed an issue. Thx, Ed.

Re: JpMagazine ???

I have the new one sitting right in front of me. It has a frontal shot of a yellow CJ-7 on a dirt pile on the cover. It's the July 2001 issue and should be on stands till August 3rd. Mostly full of TJ, out of the box suspension kit stuff and a few trail rides full of carnage. I've been paying closer attention to the advice they are giving on tech stuff lately and I've been finding myself laughing at how off they seem to be after digging around on this site. I don't know why I still spend the money?

Stooby, all of the mags are like that, but it is nice to get one that has nothing but Jeeps...even though the "Tech" is sometimes licking.

Re: JpMagazine ???

what i would really like to see from them is some 'real life' stuff. for example: do some dyno tests on a 258 stock, then with TR upgrade, then 4.0 head , etc, etc. and compare the results. test the swaps that the average joe jeeper has done (and can afford).

just my 2/100's

Re: JpMagazine ???

I was just wondering the same thing about missing a issue or even if they still are in business. The more that I read that mag, the more I wonder why I subscibe to it. The tech articles are so vague that you can't follow them and actually do it yourself. A professional shop is always doing the work. They need to get Joey55's Jeep to work on! That would make a great tech article. How to strip paint, how to drill out stripped bolts, how to replace and tune a carb, how to take 3 foreign babes wheelin' and make it back...

Re: JpMagazine ???

All of the off road rags have become huge advertisement whores, with the swelling popularity of the sport/industry. I do look forward to the JP Rag, even though all they do is plug off the shelf TJ lifts it seems lately. I dont think ill re new when my subscription runs out, then again, jeepchick writes all the checks for bills, who knows I may have already re newed.
I used to subscribe to a sailing mag, thet was subscription based for proffit. They took no advertising dollars. The subscription was something like $6.50 an issue, but they could tell it like they wanted, with no reprocussions from the dejected advertisers, when they honestly evaluated a product. It didnt have much gltz between the pages, but was loaded with usefull info, that could save your life at sea.
Now thats what we off road Jeeper's need.

Re: JpMagazine ???

I agree with H8... start a magazine that has all the usefull stuff and tips. Not everyone has an "old-timer" around to teach the special little tips to get out that broken bolt or tune that carb. Look at the consumer report magazines. No advertising and they have been like that forever. Even though they tend to create hysteria for tippings SUV's in their tests. I don't sunscribe to JP, but they have the same articles from 4wheel and off-road, its sister company. I might be biased that I like older jeeps and with all the TJ stuff, I am just not interested. I guess I need to look at the magazines from the 70's to find my tech info [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]
That is what is so great about this board, because there are people that like the old iron and the new iron, and there are topics that everyone can benefit from.
